Bradley Gilmore

Instructor: Percussion & Drum Set

Bradley Gilmore, percussion instructor, draws on his experience in instrument construction, blacksmithing, and even firefighting to provide a different kind of music lesson to his students. He began studying drum kit at the age of 13 and has performed with Arythmic Design and TreeTalk. During his twenties he accepted an apprenticeship from local artist Daniel Dutton where he explored a variety of intense artistic mediums, including constructing an opera, You’ll Always Come Back, the tradition of ballad singing, and metal work. These abstract, artistic concepts have helped shaped him as an artist and teacher.
